The age of Harold Pinter: The period of transition and trauma

Padhy Bijoya Chandra

Abstract


The type of plays writers like Eugene Ionesco, Arthur Adamon, Harold Pinter and may more of their times wrote and staged were called as Theatre of the Absurd as they did not have a cleverly constructed story or plot, no subtlety of characterization and motivation, no fully explained theme, neither a beginning nor an end. Their works reflected the preoccupations and anxieties, the emotions and thinking of the mass in the western world. Their plays depicted the picture of the mid and late twentieth century society which saw the divorce of man and his life, devoid of purpose, life of man became ABSURD, i.e., out of harmony cut off from his religions, metaphysical and transcendental roots which found its expression in the Theatre of the Absurd in its originality.

Keywords: The age of Harold Pinter, The period of transition and trauma, Period of transition and Pinter, Pinter and Realism.
